I have had the most aggravating day. I go to a college that's run by a bunch of idiots that keep putting programs in the health building (where my program is, and where there's not enough space to begin with). For instance, there's a high school class that meets there for their concurrent enrollment history class - in the health building! We had to move all over the building today just so we could hold class - we had to change rooms in the middle of the day and it seems that it's our program that gets picked on the most.
We had lecture all day where the instructor (one that I do not care for much) stood there and talked basically about nothing at all for 6 hours. I'm not kidding, one of the activities today was to color a picture and show it to someone else. (The point she was trying to make is that we can get a child to do the same thing and assess a lot from it - this is our pedi course). But, please! We're adults here!
Then, later on, this same instructor gives us a calculations quiz that counts like 15% of our grade. This is not usually a big deal, but today it was. We had new information on the quiz for pedi calculations (dosage per kg, lb, etc.) and it wasn't really hard information, but today she throws 2 trick questions at us that were just really stupid, and of course they stumped me, which just frustrated me. So I went up and asked her about this one b/c I just knew the numbers had to be wrong and she's like no, it's right, just go back and THINK about what the question is asking you. So I went back and read the question a few more times and finally got what I think is the right answer. I turned in my quiz and noticed that she looked at the question I had trouble with and I asked her if I got it right - and she smiles at me and says, sorry, I can't tell you - which I kind of expected, but it's so d*** frustrating to hear it! I was so hacked off! And, there are others that had problems with the same questions. This is a test that only has 10 questions and she gives us 2 trick questions? It's like she wanted us to do poorly on it - which, really, would reflect badly on her b/c she taught the information.
Thanks for listening - I think I'm better now.
